Gamma Force in: Pit of a Thousand Screams Tom Snyder Productions / Infocom 1988

Third in the series of interactive comic books, Gamma Force is the best Infocomic and features a cast of cool superheroes, equally interesting sub-plots for each character, and a lot of action. The story's beginning is a little disorienting as perspectives change rapidly. More emphasis on backstory would have been better, but this is still a lot of fun to watch and the animations are cool. In a dangerous world, individual superheroes are not enough. Even the best of them - a humanoid made of flame, an elf princess with a mean bow, and a musclebound waterbeast - can't do it all themselves. When they come together, they are Gamma Force. Can anybody stop them? The unique element of this software was you could "follow" the narrative from a single character's point of view, or "jump" to another character's. Thus, you could re-read the story to learn new things about how the character's different paths affected each other and the outcome of the story. The display technology used a 3D vector format; Many scenes scaled (like zooming on a camera lens), although this sacrificed detailed graphical textures and colors.
